There may be a betrayal in the works among the GOP establishment in Washington D.C., as very few Senate Republicans are willing to go on the record in opposition to impeaching President Donald Trump.
Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS), Thom Tillis (NC), Roger Wicker (MS), Mike Rounds (SD), Rob Portman (OH) and Jerry Moran (KS) were the only legislators who responded with a firm stance against impeaching Trump after they were contacted by reporters from the Daily Caller News Foundation earlier this week.
Others who responded to the Daily Caller’s request refused to rule out impeachment, carefully crafting statements to give themselves some wiggle room to throw the President under the bus if it becomes politically expedient to do so.
“The whole point of the Senate’s role is to serve as a jury while evidence is presented. I won’t prejudice that responsibility by answering a hypothetical question,” Sen. Kevin Cramer (ND) said in a statement to the Daily Caller. “The House should not present articles of impeachment without evidence to support such an awesome responsibility. So far they appear on a three-year fishing expedition.”
Sen. Lamar Alexander (TN), a notorious RINO, took a similarly weak stance while claiming that he believes it is “inappropriate for the president to be talking with foreign governments about investigating his political opponents.”
“An election, which is just around the corner, is the right way to decide who should be president. Impeachment has never removed a president. It will only divide the country further. If the House impeaches the president, the Senate would be the jury. There would be many twists and turns between now and a Senate trial. Therefore, as a potential juror, I will have nothing more to say about impeachment until all the evidence is presented and all the arguments are made,” Alexander told the Daily Caller.
Sen. Jim Inhofe (OK) was also squishy in his response, only saying that he refused to back impeachment “at this time.” Many other Senators either refused to respond to the requests from the Daily Caller, or pointed to previous statements they had made regarding impeachment that were inconclusive.
Very few lawmakers are willing to go on the record with a strong showing of support for the President, as they apparently care more about their standing within the swamp than doing the right thing heading into 2020. This suggests that the fix may be in, and the power elite may not allow the next presidential election to take place because Trump will likely win.
Yesterday, Trump loyalists in Congress – including prominent members of the House Freedom Caucus – staged a demonstration to draw attention to the secretive nature of the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry:
WATCH: here's the video of when 2 dozen GOP members, led by @mattgaetz entered the secure hearing room (SCIF) to interrupt witness testimony in the #ImpeachmentInquiry as they demand access, despite not being committee members. They're complaining it's a "Soviet-style process". pic.twitter.com/8KddYz3r9D

We want more transparency on behalf of the millions of people we represent. Democrats have engaged in secret interviews, selective leaks, performances of transcripts that never happened, and lies about whistleblowers. pic.twitter.com/0kvVHaKJsB

If Republicans in the Senate have the audacity to join the political establishment and betray Trump by voting for impeachment, there will be plenty of resistance against their efforts.
Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
